How to find the location of an IP address with fantastic accuracy

I found this web site, which uses my ip address to find my location with fantastic accuracy
As can be clearly seen, my PC sits in someones back garden, just under a hedge, in Belper, Derbyshire.
Weirdly enough, I was actually born only 10 miles North of this garden, long before the invention of the internet.
Even more strangely, I'm forced to live far to the south, in London.

What's wrong with Loughborough ? - been through it on the river Soar many times and moored there and rather liked the place.
It's where they make large bells IIRC

I'm out on the moors with Strat.  But if I zoom right in on the map I see the name of the place is 'Great Britain'.

I'm in the middle of some woods near Godalming.
At least it's in the right country (wrong county).  Lips are sealed
